Weekend is the best time for a family vacation. It’s 48 hours of fun with the people you love. We have prepared for you the best ideas for a joint holiday with children.
Of course, you can play «rock, paper, scissors» at the family meeting and choose an option that the winner will prefer. However, as practice shows, the weekend should be planned no less carefully than workdays.
One of the key rules of a perfect weekend is not to leave a bunch of household chores on Saturday and Sunday. If you spend business workdays a little more systematically, pay bills, make the necessary purchases, then the weekend will be completely at your disposal.
While planning, you need to take into account the free time of all family members. If children, for example, have the sports section on Sunday morning, then long trip out of town with an overnight stay is a bad idea. You need to understand how many hours you have, and try to use them as efficiently as possible, and this is a whole «science» – the discipline of time management is studied in many educational institutions of the world.
But don’t try to keep everyone on a tight schedule. No need to fill out the schedule with the dozens of entertainment and then frantically trying to handle everything without receiving pleasure from the rest.
Be objective. At the weekend you have to give yourself a rest and at the same time recharge your batteries for the new week. If you were spinning like a squirrel in a wheel for 5 days, then you should not choose active options, a quiet rest might be better: a visit to the cinema, a slowly walk with a picnic in the city park. But for those who were dying of boredom in the office on weekdays, it is better to have fun, such as: the bikes race, hot-air ballooning, laser tag or quests.
It is also necessary to pay attention to the needs of each person. Do not offer people with allergies to plants walks in the woods, or the fearful one – extreme rafting on the river. Besides, always listen to the desire of the child. You are crazy about theatrical productions, but your child falls asleep at every performance? In this case, a cultural holiday can become a bone of contention in your family.
Parents need to think ahead. If you plan to hike in the mountains on Saturday morning, everything you need should be packed in the evening on Friday.
It is definitely worth exploring the surroundings. Ask friends, read reviews on the Internet. Going somewhere, you’d better understand what awaits you there.
Prepare a «first aid kit». Its contents will be useful not only in campaigns. Here is a short list recommended staff:
Do not rely solely on your opinion. Arrange a family brainstorming session, perhaps a lot of great ideas will be born.
Set a limit on the Internet. For example, if we are talking about active weekends, you can limit the screen time spent on the gadget to 15-20 minutes.
Do not forget about a balanced diet and daily routine. On weekends you need to have a good rest, sleep and eat properly.
Listen carefully to your children on weekends. In the confusion of everyday life, sometimes there is not enough time for simple heart-to-heart communication. Try to understand how your son or daughter lives, what their interests are.
In one interview, the founder of Microsoft Bill Gates said that 20 years ago he would have been happy to spend a weekend at work. But now he has become wiser and gives free days to the family.
In social networks on personal pages of many celebrities you can find happy family photos. If they manage to carve out a weekend for relatives, then it is unfair to ordinary people to blame for the lack of time.
Family weekend begins with the desire to spend time together. Each point in the schedule of Saturday and Sunday can be bright, unforgettable, and most importantly, become a part of a common memory.
